The Unforeseen

Movie Summary

Director:
Laura Dunn
Released:
2008
Rating:
Not Available
The Unforeseen is a 2007 documentary film directed by Laura Dunn (Green). It was produced with the help of Terry Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life) and actor-turned-producer Robert Redford. The film centers around America's current exploitation of nature and land and the consequences such abuse might have on human existence and society in the future. The filmmakers use Barton Springs in Austin, Texas as a primary example, but clearly state that this is an issue that translates across the country. The filmmakers take an obvious stance on the issues presented, but their opinions and voices aren't as stark and suffocating as the bullheaded Michael Moore. This film is recommended especially for those unaware of the government plans which jeopardize the sanctity of the nation. The Unforeseen is shot beautifully and includes subtle narration by several guests. Its message is clear and though-provoking, leaving you with a visceral feeling that something must be done to preserve nature.
